Awesome and thanks for all the great feedback! I think I'll give the 80 a shot, swapping out the OEM carbs right away same with plugs, air filters and finally rounding off with a nice little tune pipe and gearing down with a smaller sprocket for a bottom end boost then I guess I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed and hope they will stay upright pulling hills! If nothing else it should be a fun learning (slightly expensive) experience for myself and my brother in law.

Quick side note, I got my hands on a wrecked Yamaha 750 (totaled front end) for dirt cheap and I've got my eyes out for a used trike bike that I have some insane plans in the near future for and possibly a laydown recumbent racer concept I'm working up in AutoCAD I'll keep posted as I update these!
